My name is Ms. Myriam L. Jimenez and I am a life long student, educator and mentor. I am the 4th child of a family of eight 2 older brothers and 5 sisters. My parents migrated from Puerto Rico to the United States in search of The Latin American Dream. My Father was a Merchant Marine and my Mother was a servant of the Lord & a home maker. When my Dad returned from serving in the Military he found work at a stainless steel factory, until one day the plant shut down. At the early age of 16 my parents took me out of J.H.S 118 in Bronx New York, so I can go to work to help them pay the rent, buy food, and take care of my siblings. I promised myself that if I ever had a chance I would finish my education.
Be sure to ask your loved on how they feel about the caregiver.

I suggest this college to anyone because it offers flexibility. All the live classes are recorded so if you cannot make one you can listen to it anytime that is right for you. Most people assume that if you take online classes you will not ever be in touch with your instructors, but I can personally tell you that this is not like that at Colorado Tech. All teachers answer you by email on any questions in 48 hours. Most of the time, you get a response within a few hours. There are two live classes a week, which is another great opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

The last 9 years of her life we had a fabulous home health aide classes. We got her through a neighbor of my daughter. She was like Whoopi Goldberg on speed. She had a fabulous attitude, was a clean nut and a health nut insisting on only the freshest food for my Mom. She would hand pick every fruit, vegetable or piece of meat herself and cook it up using her Baijan recipes. There was cow heel soup for strength and juiced celery, carrots, and root vegetables for vitamens. She bathed and lotioned my Mom as though my Mom was her own child.
Tamra asks why. David says so they could get something to eat. (Red Flag 6; David never prior indicated any attraction to Tamra, and she was never attracted to him, either). She doesn’t question why he thinks a dress is necessary for eating, and instead agrees to wear a dress.
My role of a teacher has became a role of a Mamma & Grandma at the same time. Providing educational strategies for both the children and parent’s is essential. And good parent teacher communication is a must. You sometimes be surprised the things that families are lacking and are in dyer need of. The basic essentials of a healthy diet, furniture, clothing, pampers, formula. Or even a simple referral to agencies that can help them with Health care, Child Care, Job Preparation, WIC, rent & utilities, Education. Parents as well as children need to know about the program that are here to assist and prepare them for the work force. Some times they just need someone to point them in the rite direction.
Most of us would never dream of not having home owners insurance, health insurance (that’s another issue) or auto insurance. After looking at some of the facts and family medical history, the conclusion seems clear that as baby boomers, we must give this a serious look. The challenge for us is too learn as much as we can about long term care so that we can have options and not be caught off guard by an unexpected illness that could wipe out our retirement or add an undue burden on our families.
